i really feel sorry for in a way, my dad has the same problem with high blood presure. you should have a family gathering make her feel appriciated and dont let her think about finanical situations on her own let her feel that everything that concerns her concerns you. instead of her making the food you should start doing it. you are 20 by the way so you can take care of the finanical situation and cook. let her rest and if you can find some peperment "fresh green leafs" i would recommend that she has a cup of that every now and then again dont let her get upset. agree with her try not to fight. and if she fights fight for her
